Kevin Reeves

Kevin is certified as a Professional Co-Active Coach and is also certified through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). His undergrad degree is in Christian Education from Biola University and before becoming a coach, he was a pastor. However, after about 5-years on the pastoral circuit, Kevin realized that being a pastor wasn’t where he wanted to be, and through that, he found coaching.

Coaching and therapy can beautifully compliment each other while being different. Where therapy tends to focus on the past and present, valuable for understanding where we’ve come from and our origin story, coaching focuses more on the present and future and supports us to choose what the next chapter might look like. So while we all have some degree of trauma, we are not defined by our trauma. It is not your identity.

Kevin works with individuals from all faith backgrounds. Bring your story and your trauma and learn to navigate your inner critic, to honor your values, to shift your perspectives, and take part in the journey of becoming the confident partner/leader/parent/human that you choose to be.

Kevin offers 50-minute phone and/or Zoom sessions and is currently taking new clients.

If none of our affiliate counselors/ coaches are a good fit for you, please reach out and we will help find a better fit. Our affilates partner with our organization and share our heart for healing.
